Never thought you would see the day when your mobile device helped you care for your skin? This new tool is living proof that it now exists.

Aesthetician to the stars Melanie Simon first made a name for herself with her sought-after celeb-favored one-off facials that use electrical currents to firm, tighten and lift skin. Then, she was involved in the super science-based beauty line, Circ Cell. Now, the skin master, who’s like a magician for the pores, has developed one of the most high-tech and unique ways to get perfect skin (without having an appointment with her) no matter where in the world you may be thanks to the help of your phone.
The sleek ZIIP Nano Current Facial Device works unlike any other tool we’ve seen for the sheer fact that it’s powered by an iPhone app . “You select and download the skin program — or “cocktail” — you want on your device. The cocktails, which include treatments for anti-aging or acne, sends skin-treating nanocurrents to the device and last from two to 12 minutes and vary in intensity depending on the program you are using,” says Simon. To make sure you don’t lose interest or get frustrated during a treatment, there are tones and lights that flash and beep from start to finish, signaling when it’s time to move to another area and when you’re finished. “It’s a great adjunct to professional facials for addressing eye concerns, improving skin texture and fighting signs of aging and adult acne.” This gives weird science a whole new meaning, and we like it!
